Before you can write any code against the GolfNow Platform, you'll need to have a GolfNow account. If you already have an account on GolfNow.com or any of our partner sites, then you're already good to go. Just sign in with your credentials. If you don't have an account, you'll need to create one.
While we try to make this API and easy to use as many other public APIs, it is not public. Once you have signed in, you'll have to opportunity to request access to the API. If you're access is approved, you'll then be able to create and manage your API client applications.
In order to interact with our data services, you'll need to create an application first. When you create your
application, you'll provide us with a name and a description and we will provide you with a
client_secret, and an
application_secret. We advise that you to create one application for
development and another for testing. You can have as many applications as you need without charge so please make
use of the create and disable functions as needed.
To help you with your development, we have provided a series of scenarios and tutorials to help guide you. Additionally, we have put together a basic workbench for certain API calls. The workbench allows you to put in required and optional endpoint parameters and see how the call should be constructed to obtain the desired results. Additionally, it shows the returned data so that there is no guesswork.
The REST resources represent the data contracts to which you will be developing. Here we provide the full example of the data that you'll be expected to provide and what we will return to you.
While we don't have a format approval process, we would like a courtesy demo of your new application before it goes live...
